Rockland County Shields
Happy 2019 to all!
Depending on which almanac you read – we will have a very snowy winter – or we won’t.
On Friday, January 25th, 30 new police officers graduated from the Rockland County Police Academy. We extend our congratulations – and wish them safe and rewarding careers. Welcome to the family.
Dues Notices for 2019 have been mailed out to all Shields members. To those who have already sent in dues payments – we thank you for your prompt response. Please send in your dues payments as soon as possible so we can get all the 2019 membership cards out.
We ask that members be ready to show a current card at the door when attending General Meetings. The bylaws state that meetings are for members in “good standing”. If you don’t have a 2019 membership card – you may not have paid your dues. If you are not sure – see Financial Secretary Jim Sciacca.
We are seeing many horrific acts of violence against law enforcement officers all over the country. This lack of respect for human life, and the law in general, requires that we always be prepared and on guard.
Active members: be vigilant, wear your vest, and go home after each tour
And for retired members: - know the law of the state/county you visit
- refresh yourself on LEOSA (HR218) and the Penal Law
(Art 35 & Art 400)
- practice at the range
REMEMBER TO THANK OUR VETERANS AND FIRST RESPONDERS
